Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. I enjoy traveling and look forward to visiting cemeteries in Canada and the U.S.

It's very rewarding to fulfill photo requests, and I'm always interested in knowing where other Find A Grave members are from and a little bit about them.

I've been interested in photography since I was a child. Photographing headstones and plaques can sometimes present challenges in making sure they can be read. My Photoshop skills have been handy for cropping, optimizing file sizes, lightening images for clarity. My checklist for cemetery visits grows longer, but a brush is the biggest essential (next to a camera, which is always in my bag).

I am happy to transfer memorial pages to relatives.

Hi Donna:

Would you please resend the request to transfer using the Edit tab at the top right of each memorial you want transferred? Use the "suggest other correction" option in the Edit tab. This way I will get a direct link to the exact memorial you want transferred, with less chance for error.

Nelson and Smole stones
Dear Donna,

Thank you so much for going out and taking pictures of Inza and John Nelsons stones and also their daughter Gae Smole's. I was so thrilled and excited to get your messages this morning and see the pictures. You did a wonderful job. My family and I really appreciate your help on this. Thank you again!

RE: Clarence Osborne
I don't know anything about the Osborne family, so if you'd like to make memorials for them, that would be great. I am not related, I picked up Clarence Osborne's funeral booklet (that seems to be handwritten by his mother) once upon a time, that had his obituary, as well as a picture. I need to scan the picture so I can add it too his memorial.

RE: Friedt, Jerome (26476817) 1935-1991

Thanks for the note. I too am not from the Dickinson area, but my wife was born and raised on a farm near there. Also, most of her 13 brothers & sisters still live in that area. For that reason we usually make the long trip to Dickinson once or twice a year.

Remillong and Zabel
Thank you very much for taking the photos of the Remillong and Zabel graves in St. Joseph Cemetery in Dickinson, ND. I really appreciate the extra effort you took to cut away the grass and obtain a good, sharp image of the stone for Clarence Remillong. I also like the photos of the general area of these burials.
